Serendipity Residential Family Assessment Centre is an independent and privately run organisation which responds to the needs of families who have experienced difficulties providing safe parenting to their children.
Serendipity is proud of it's independent status and believe that our thorough and autonomous approach our service offers is reflected throughout the assessment process.
Throughout over ten years of service provision, Serendipity has successfully maintained and enhanced positive practices which maximise the opportunities for our residents to fully realise their potential as parents. Serendipity has fundamental belief in the importance of family and the human capacity for positive change. Our assessments are responsive to the individual needs of residents and strive to equip families with the skills and resources they need in order to make the positive changes and choices required to live safely in the community.
Whilst we aim to work in partnership with parents, Serendipity maintains a clear focus on the care, safety and protection of the children residing at the Assessment Centre.Our Assessment Services
Serendipity Family Assessment Centre is unable to accept any new referrals at present due to an on-going dispute with Ofsted. Serendipity are pursuing concerns regarding the Ofsted inspection process between June 2017 and February 2018 via a Care Standards Tribunal. Whilst this is a lengthy process, we are optimistic that we shall be resuming full operation after February 2019
